About the Program
Enjoy one-of-a-kind art projects themed around Skirball exhibitions. Reinforcing the values of collaboration, community, and caring for the world around us, projects will ignite the imaginations of your family members, whether they are 2 or 102!
December 1–January 6: Cause-Worthy Collars—Check out RBG’s dissent collars in the Notorious RBG exhibition and then create wearable art that represents a cause you believe in.
January 12–27: Family Tree Mobiles—In honor of the Jewish holiday of Tu B’Shevat, the New Year of the Trees, create a family tree to celebrate your family’s roots and branches.
February 2–24: Keepsake Cabinets—Inspired by Sara Berman’s Closet design a miniature cabinet filled with treasures and mementos.
“The Skirball [Cultural] Center’s exhibitions are guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing, so put the mojo to good use in the museum’s Family Art Studio. The bright, colorful space is marketed to kiddos, what with the low tables and a toddler-friendly play nook outfitted with books, toys, and beanbag chairs. Staff and volunteers offer as much or as little hand-holding as your future Picasso wants.”—“The Best Things to Do in LA in 2018,” Los Angeles magazine
